    Nov 29, 2007, 8:58 AM - Greatest Football Player of all Time #1

    In my opinion, the greatest footbal player of all time was #34 Walter Payton. I think he was the prototype football player who did everything well. Not only is he unquestionably one of the best runners of all time, he could block better than any runningback I've ever seen. He also had that toughness that allowed him to navagate his entire career without major injury, starting all but (I think) one game.

    But the main thing was his incredible work ethic, character, and soft spoken humble personality that has so endeared me to him. Now one of my prize posessions is a Walter Payton autograghed mini-helmet which is proudly displayed on top of my TV.

    Who would you pick as the greatest ever?

    I thought of Walter Payton before I opened the thread. Montana and Rice are very good choices as well. Although I don't like the fact that he was juiced, was there a more dominating defensive player than LT?

    If we count the CFL, we might as well throw in Tecmo Super Bowl. Bo Jackson baby, and it's not even close!

    FYI...the first American style football game was played in Toronto in 1861. And Damon Allen holds the all time professional football record for passing yards 72 000+, surpassing another great former CFLer Warren Moon. I have more respect for some one who plays for the love of the game, not to become a Millionaire.

    You guys are spelling the all time NFL players name wrong. It's F.A.V.R.E. No problem, we all make mistakes

    That's an extremely tough call in all ways but I'll agree with SpideyFett on this one.....Montana and Rice. Nothing but class. No silly end zone antics or smack talking.....How many records does the old # 80 have??! There are and have been other QB's who look cool as ice in that pocket, but Joe was a Field General. The coolest of cool. The best player (s) shouldn't be judged on mere stats. There are those "intangables" to consider too.

    Tom Brady. The Patriots are a dynasty. I don't have much knowledge of players from years ago..but I think Brady has a very bright future!!
